    Aluminum Brazing/Soldering Rods

    0 5/5 Harvey Chao (Santa Clara, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bernzomatic AL3 Aluminum Brazing/Welding Rods with 12-Inch Rods of Working Temperature 700-750 Degrees, 2-Piece (Tools & Home Improvement) Teamed with a propane torch- this is about the only way short of heli-arc welding to non-mechanically fabricate aluminum parts together. It does pay to be careful that you get the metal hot enough to allow the rod to melt, wet, and flow smoothly, - - but not hot enough to soften or melt the aluminum you are joining. Because there is no color change in the metal as there is with steel (red, orange, white hot) you need to pay attention and repeatedly test while heating as to when the work pieces are hot enough to melt the rod. A great option to have when you don't or cant bolt, sheet metal screw, nuts and bolts, or screw and tap. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 10, 2010

    Fantastic, but takes a little practice!

Start by cleaning the joint well with a stainless steel brush. It is important to use stainless and not some other material. Get the rod hot (but not melting) dip it in the dry powder flux. Heat the joint well with a MAPP torch, from all sides. Then apply the rod/flux to the joint. AS SOON as the flux begins to melt draw the rod along the seam of the joint. With a little practice you'll get great welds!Forney 37025 Aluminum Welding Flux, 4-Ounce 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 17, 2014

    Did not work for me

    0 1/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ALUMALOY 10 Rods: Aluminum REPAIR Rods No Welding Fix Cracks Drill Tap Polish or Paint (Misc.) This product did not work at all. I tried to repair a broken flange on an aluminum transmission case with it. The rods barely melted when using a propane torch. I tried an oxy-acetylene torch and was able to get the material to flow & puddle, however it never bonded to the aluminum case. I tried several times, cleaned the parts to be repaired extensively, never had any success. I could not recommend this product for cast aluminum repairs. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 14, 2015

    GOOD STUFF MAYNARD!

    0 5/5 mark palacio - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I milled an extra hole through an 80% receiver and thought I blew it! I thought about it and first considered Devcon aluminum putty good stuff a little pricey. I watched the demo video on alumaloy and figured of what the HE double toothpicks give it a try. Now be patient boys when you use it it takes time to heat and you want to practice on something with a hole in it to learn how to pool the product over the hole. Well you betchum little beaver that hole I made all but disappeared! I was a little shocked as im ok with my hands but a novice with welding/soldering. I dremeled the piece and the results look like a pro! not to toot my own horn of course but this product has my thumbs way up! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 16, 2014

    Works amazingly well. Now you can braze aluminum!

    0 5/5 Bill Gottesman (Vermont, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Muggy Weld Super Alloy 5 Starter Kit - 7 x 18" x 3/32" Dia Rods + Flux (Misc.) Muggy Weld 5 is amazing. Other aluminum brazing products I have tried do not flow into joints, but adhere like putty on the joint's exposed surfaces. Muggy Weld 5 Rod and its powder flux flow quickly into all aluminum crevices, similar to how lead solder wets a fluxed copper joint. The joint is smooth, tidy, and stronger than the parent aluminum. I have been using a propane torch with small aluminum parts on a heat reflective soldering board, but larger parts would require more heat than a propane torch can provide. Thin aluminum sheet (~1/16") is tough to work with at the temperature needed for Muggy Weld 5 - it is very easy to burn a hole in the sheet. Practice and experience should help (I am a novice).Note - You don't get a lot of material for your $71 (cost plus shipping), but it was worth it to me considering that to get a comparable joint I would have to buy welding or acetylene equipment or hire a welder. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 8, 2015
